I love to knit toys. Sadly, Baby Man does not like soft toys. He likes Hot Wheels. So, while I don’t knit toys very often, but I jump at any chance I have to make one for someone who might like them.
The pattern is The Bunny Bunch from the book [amazon_link id=”0715331728″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Knitted Toy Tales[/amazon_link] by Laura Long. I knit it using Wendy Peter Pan Cupcake yarn in the fabulously named colour 800 Coconut Bunny. The fabric was from my stash, and I sewed it on using a variegated pink sewing thread, which is why it might look a bit strange.
The bunny was a gift for a six-month old little girl, the daughter of our friends who recently moved to Cambodia to start a rather ambitious business. Mommy and baby are back for a visit to tie up loose ends, and to visit family and friends. And, as you can imagine, we were very happy to see them.
I think the little bunny will be happy in her new home on the other side of the world. Maybe one day we will be able to visit her there.
